GDF- geological disposal facility: the search area is in Cumbria is widened

May be an image of map and text
The search is on for a suitable place for the GDF (geological disposal facility) the formation of this new partnership. This doesn’t mean Copeland will host an underground geological disposal facility but it does mean we remain part of the conversation about what is done with high level nuclear waste. Most of the waste is currently at Sellafield. A £1m a year funding pot is now available to those communities involved.

Local government reform

A new website – https://newcouncilsforcumbria.info/ – has been launched to explain more about the reorganisation of local government in Cumbria.
The website has lots of useful information about the two new councils for the county.
From 1 April 2023 the current six district councils and Cumbria County Council will be replaced with two new ‘unitary’ councils:
➡Cumberland Council will cover the current Allerdale, Carlisle and Copeland council areas.
➡Westmorland and Furness Council will cover the current Barrow, Eden and South Lakeland council areas.

Margaret Woodburn good citizen award individual winner 2021

 

LEGACY: The winners of the first Margaret Woodburn Awards

A COMMUNITY stalwart who passed away earlier this year has had her legacy immortalised in a new set of awards.

The Margaret Woodburn Good Citizen/s Awards took place at an Egremont Town Council meeting earlier this week.

They were set up to reward those who have gone above and beyond to help their community – just like Mrs Woodburn always did throughout her life.

The night was a particularly special one for Margaret’s daughter Elaine, who is now the chair of Egremont Town Council.

Elaine said: “It was quite poignant. It just so happened to have fallen on the night that I was appointed chair of the town council and so I was able to present the awards.

“All the town councillors were present at the ceremony and I know my mam would have been so proud that the council named the awards after her – but knowing how much she did for the local community she would have been equally proud of all the worthy winners.”

Elaine said that the awards were a perfect way for the town and its people to remember her mother who did a lot of work in the community.

 

Paying tribute to Margaret, Elaine said: “It was [helping people] something that she always did and she has instilled it in all of us so we can carry on her legacy and my mam’s memory.

“She was never one to sit back and let others do things, she would do it herself. There are people in our community that have the same spirit; they are all real assets to the town.”

The Margaret Woodburn Good Citizen Award 2021 Winner was Julie Riley. She was awarded the title in particular for her tireless work throughout Covid to help people on Moor Row get through lockdown.

The Margaret Woodburn Good Citizen Group Award also had two very worthy winners: the Bigrigg and Egremont Womble Groups. The award was split between the two groups.

There were many other runners up who were commended on the night for their amazing work.

Elaine said: “These are people who give up their time for nothing just to make where they live a better place.”
